W3 page on Color Standards X11 shows a 1-99 breakdown that I am familiar with over at Xxxxx (name redacted as advertising not welcomed). Namely, every Primary color can be applied using a fixed "primary" Hexadecimal stepping system. That system counts up using "primary" increments. Those increments diversify without color names. https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_x11.asp The W3 Schools page uses primary increments, but only for grey-scale. Here are the primary units for all colors. 11 22 33 44 55 66 77 88 99 AA BB CC DD EE FF X11 leans on photographic deployment of oil and tempera color names resulting in an expected tangle, excepting grey-scale. Given that every device has its own physical palette, and hence none see the same color called Bisque #ffe4c4, it would be rational to reset Bisque to a nearest Primary neighbor, and apply 99 primary increments from there. ... EEDDBB FFEECC 11FFDD ... This methodology provides SAFE Primary Colors for developers and frameworks; that is, SAFE COLORS for HTML5. SAFE applies to HTML as simply more rational. Compare 18-21 WEB SAFE colors in CSS 2.0. Using RGB, CMY, RYB color wheels, and thousands of proprietary (mostly patent) color wheels available today, what is wrong with a psychiatric, chemical, endocrine, artistic, and general scientific principal shared by all humans: namely, Primary Association? The very interesting thing about primary color associations, is that toward darkest and lightest increments, the primary increments tend to pure white and pure black, an exacting conformance with human vision. To accommodate that vision, oil and tempera artists have a full palette of color names awaiting digital presentation. Factually, more color names than we need. PRIMARY COLOR NAMES are an established and appropriate way forward. We can do it like certain other rational parties and each independently setup our own COLOR.CSS, using whatever color names we choose. Or we can proceed with primary conversion of Bisque 1-99 with nominal Bisque somewhere between 1 and 99. Not a great intellectual challenge, though time consuming (multiply by 145 today and 755 tomorrow). CMS frameworks have primary 'templates'. Operating systems, likewise. I cannot find an online public demonstration of the primary principals suited to HTML5+ technology, as discussed in this thread. A color tutorial on primary colors and 99 increments for each established color name would be an interesting read. And help in understanding of color implementation. How many potential color names? Count the primary units above: (99 x 15) x 3 = 4,445 (my stats are very rusty). Nominal primaries are much more do-able: 15 x 15 = 225 color names for today's 1-F framework. 145 falls short by 80 color names. We can distributes primary increments to color names accordingly, with thousands of primary slots available. Primary color association leaves potentially millions of unique no-name colors to code. This thread begins with a simplistic way of observing complex and dynamic color theory. Color needs a simple framework. W3 Schools has a simple tutorial on Primary Digital Color?
